Are they joking or what????

Today I was on my way to get tyres I noticed my fuel gauge getting a bit low. I passed a Caltex servo and thought ahwell I'll get some fuel after I get tyres. The fuel price at the time was 95.7cpl.

After 4 tyres fitted and a wheel alignment I came back to the same Caltex and the price of ULP had jumped to 107.9cpl they are kidding right?

Now at 107.9cpl thatís close to 10cpl GST not to mention the world parity fuel tax. The government has been getting a few $$$ from that.

It's about time the State or Federal Governments did something about this. They have gotten away with it for far too long. When are the motoring groups going to do something about this? I for one can not afford to keep paying these sorts of prices for fuel.

I will be sending a letter off to my local State and Federal Members off tomorrow. I urge you to do the same.

Re: Are the joking or what????
